MY WORK

ABOUT ME

Who I am...

Hi, I'm Nicole Lopez, and I’m an aspiring User Interface designer! I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2021 where I studied New Media Design with minors in the Japanese language as well as Game Design. I'm currently searching for a full-time position in a design field and am available to start at any time.

What I do...

I have a strong passion for design, no matter the field. My main goal is to create designs that make people happy! In other words, I want to design things that bring enjoyment to others by making things more usable, making things more fun, and of course, making things look more beautiful.

More about me...

I am a total nerd: I love playing tabletop games, video games, and watching Japanese anime. I also enjoy singing both American pop and Japanese pop songs, so I'm always down for karaoke!
